Isaiah 48:9-11 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)
9 For my name’s sake I’ll be patient.
For my glory’s sake I’ll hold my anger back from you,
rather than destroy you.
10 I have refined you,
but not like silver.
I have tested you in the furnace of suffering.
11 I am doing this for myself, only for myself.
Why should my name be dishonored?
I will not give my glory to anyone else.
